Good service but needs iPad Pro multitasking needs updates 2/5
By Randen Montalvo
I have had scribd for sometime but they are not listening to their audience with iPad pros wanting multitasking support. It’s very annoying that this is the only PAID service app left behind by every other book app in the App Store. You are locked into the app cannot do anything else and it’s just dated considering free book apps have this feature. Scribd needs to update the iPad Pro app or face frustrating is user base to a dated feature set as compared to EVER BOOK APP IN THE APP STORE. I myself am considering cancelling due to this and my wife, it’s just a critical thing to have on a 12.9 iPad Pro. Scribd is not updated the app in a meaningful way and more importantly years not listening to its users especially on twitter whom have been yelling for that update.
What's going on?? 1/5
By Blaque Reign
Am I not able to download documents to my iPad?? The features works on my laptop.. Please help!
Great App 3/5
I wish it had text to speech! -already built into the phone why not allow the program to use it- "common sense".
Also there used (iPad) to be a text to select option it’s gone, please bring it back.
Good app for what I use it for 4/5
Works well for having access to and reading books that I otherwise wouldn't want to buy. Also good for finding old editions of game manuals. For now the monthly fee is worth it for the access it gets you.
Great app with minor issues 3/5
I love the app but the books have this annoying bar at the bottom that tells you how far you’ve read and how much further you have to go. I do most of my reading at night were i make the pages black so that bar sticks out even more. Its petty but its very distracting when im reading.
Good but less attractive 4/5
A great resource overall, and I’ve especially benefited from the ability to download PDFs. But I had an audiobook disappear when I was 80% finished with it, and was basically told, yes, sometimes titles get removed — which makes me wary of doing serious reading of books to which I add annotations. Also the highlighter no longer resembles a highlighter and is quite ugly. I thought that was a glitch but customer service explained it was part of a “rebranding” effort.
Keeps getting better 5/5
Both the app itself and the wide variety of books available has continued to improve over the past few years. A good choice for readers who like variety,
Absolutely brilliant. 5/5
I'm not aware of any other service that supplies you with this much knowlege at such a cheap price. Unbelievably valuble, thank you scribd.
I don't even use this and I'm being charged with a subscription. Someone help because I don't know how to end this stupid App. I never even used this.
Love it 4/5
Love this app 5/5
By Joey Elledge
Love using the E-Books and Audiobooks. Great variety and great value.
Love it 5/5
I love this app I spent most time on it and I found all the books
Was nice, until last update.. 1/5
With the latest update I am unable to swipe music right to left, the pages only scroll up in a continuous manner, so it’s impossible to read music with this app any longer. I’ve searched everywhere, and there used to be a place to make this change, but it seems to be missing. Pretty disappointed, as this is the main reason I use this, so I doubt I will keep this app. It’s not worth the monthly payment imo.
What happened? 1/5
My documents scroll vs flip pages now and I can’t figure out why?
Scribd application 5/5
Scribd is just wonderful .You can find a lot of very interesting information for health improvement.Thank you.
What happened to page flips? 2/5
After most recent update, none of my pages will flip when I turn—it will only scroll up and down. I use scribd for sheet music, and this makes it a huge pain. There doesn’t seem to be a way to change this either. What gives??
I have truly enjoyed this until the recent update. There is not an African American literature section anymore. This is one of the reasons I've enjoyed the app. The books I wanted to read were not easily located. Not happy at all! I'm thinking about giving up this subscription.
Basically theft 1/5
I paid for this app and used one of my credits to get a book. They later inform me that the book is no longer going to be available in about two days, leaving me no time to read it.
They did not credit me back for removing the book I had paid for. This is unacceptable.
Not compatible with kindle fire 1/5
Needs to more compatible with ALL kindle fire versions or allow users to utilize the web site. Cancelling account now...
I don’t love it anymore 1/5
I love the books yes and I was enjoying the books but I got a problem with my payment information due to identity theft. When I updated my payment information, they suscribe me again and I paid for two app. Yes they sent me an email how to erase one app but it is the most complicated process that had seen in my entire life. So yes they maybe keep the money but not my business anymore.
Not impressed. 1/5
By Victor Tony
Very unimpressive collection and a huge waste of time.
Sleazy greedy 1/5
Surprise! You're subscribed! Surprise! You're paying a monthly fee!
Try to unsubscribe? Good luck.
This app is like opening a box full of treasure. 5/5
By The Emperors' New Clothes
I'm finding many magical things. So far, it's worth the subscription fee.
It's only a Rental Service 2/5
The audio content that I thought belonged to me, unfortunately did not. The moment I cancel my membership, nothing will be available to me. This is not what I was looking for. It is my fault, should have read all terms before assuming. I get one audiobook credit each month and I can "enjoy" it until I pay 8.99 each month forever or until the deal between Scribd and the Publishing house is valid.
The update f'd it up 1/5
This went from great to amazingly bad.
Doesn't save my highlighting and notes 2/5
Won't save my annotations in books on the Apple version, so why bother?
Great idea, lots of glitches lately 1/5
I have been using Scribd for about 4 years now (since back when they had comics) I have always loved it but the past 6 months they have gotten sloppy. Books don't download, audiobooks won't play properly and now I can't open a book (it's been a week w/o it) I am half way done with. I have contacted support several times in the past few months with problems and questions and they take FOREVER to get back to you. When they do, they seldom actually answer the question you asked but instead spout FAQ answers that are irrelevant.
Now that there are so many apps and services that offer the same things I would not suggest a subscription to Scribd. Let them get there act together again before spending the money on a glitchy app with bad costumer service.
UPDATE: the latest update erased everything saved offline and wants me to use my credits to purchase books I already purchased. This app keeps getting worse.
Audiobook function doesn't work AT ALL 2/5
It's nice app visually but the audiobook function doesn't work. Doesn't download books and doesn't even stream/play them.
Where did all my books go? 1/5
The books I had started reading have disappeared. I have no idea how to find them again. I wish instead of sticking to some arbitrary time frame of putting out a new version every two weeks that you would take the time to test what your builds before releasing. Why is putting out a new version every two weeks so important?
Doesn't work 2/5
Using iPhone 6+ running latest iOS 10. Signing in redirects to another page requesting signing in and so forth. This happens on the mobile website as well. Facebook, Google and email login option all doesn't work.
Can't read books with app 1/5
By Awallz 101
I have come to Scribd recently via a trial. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to open any text books with the app. I've been able to listen to audiobooks. In contacting the had me delete and load the app again with no change in the results. Once my trial is over I will be canceling the subscription. There is no reason for me to continue a paid subscription if I can't read books.
I was running busy these few months and hadn't used most of my credits. I figured to use all my credit on books i wanted and pause my membership till i finish my credits. Unfortunately, pausing membership also denies you of right to finish reading a book or using any remaining credits. I understand what scribd is trying to do but this system is not a user friendly system in a consumers POV. I feel like getting robbedof some sort but other than that; if u can finish all your credits in a scheduled timing, scribd is a 4.5 star app for reading.
Missing chapters from an audiobook 3/5
By AKA Lady 71
I purchased Beyond Desire by Gwennye Forster. Chapters 8 and 9 were missing from the book. Total waste. You go the chapters having a conflict to everything being ok.
I enjoy it 4/5
Easy to use; lots available. I just wish it gave more than 3 tokens a month
Do Not Get this APP! 1/5
The APP has no way to cancel it in app. You have to go into you device settings. Really not worth the bother just use the kindle app. Much more user friendly.
Not only do you NOT get to listen to the full audiobooks that YOU choose (you'd have to purchase more book credits in addition to your monthly fee), they bill you whenever they feel like it. My payment for Sept 1st was taken today, August 11th. It's only $9 but then the app is still scheduling to take a payment out of my account on September 1st! I finally got used to having to only listen to the "Scribd select" books and now they're doing dirty business with my bank account. SAVE YOUR MONEY AND YOUR TIME. DONT GET THIS APP.
Not Oyster but I Enjoy it 4/5
If you were an Oyster fan then you will not like Scribd's limited monthly books. I am a fan of Scribd's selections though. There is a larger History selection here than Oyster. Let us also be honest...... I Love to Read. No problems with their app on my end so 4 out of 5 stars for me. I really like Scribd.
Their library keeps expanding. 5/5
Good value for me.
Esta aplicación es la mejor idea que alguien haya concebido. Es una fuente excelente de lectura electrónica.😄
Great as a service but lousy app! 3/5
I've been a long time subscriber and have rolled with them throughout the pricing and service changes and will continue but I sure wish this app would get better. It is so slow in loading (even downloaded books) and often crashes on my iPad and iPhone. They also keep changing the app, taking good features away such as a bookmark. How stupid! 5 stars for the service but 1 star for the app so they get a 2 1/2 star rating (even though this will appear to be a 3 sear)
Reading Has Never Been So Fun! 5/5
With so many different books available, I can explore different genres and expand my tastes. Awesome!
Great App 4/5
Well worth the price and has a lot of options other book apps don't. I do wish they had a way to have non audible books to be read.
Great App 5/5
Love it. Lots of choices and reasonable subscription fee
I love this app! 5/5
By Nicole Paz
I love this app!! I absolutely 100% would recommend it to anyone!
SCRIBED IS GREAT 5/5
I LIKE SCRIBED EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE ONLY RENTING THE BOOKS AND AUDIOBOOKS YOU READ OR LISTEN TO EVERY MONTH, UNLIKE AUDIBLE OR KINDLE WHERE YOU PURCHASE A BOOK OR AUDIOBOOK AND GET TO KEEP IT IN YOUR CLOUD FOREVER SINCE YOU DONT RENT THEIR BOOKS YOU ACTUALLY OWN THEM. WITH SCRIBED YOU ONLY RENT OR BORROW THE BOOKS, SO YOU ONLY HAVE ACCESS TO THOSE BOOKS AS LONG AS YOUR STILL PAYING THE MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP FEES. ALTHOUGH NOT OWNING THE BOOKS LIKE OTHER SERVICES IS ITS DOWNSIDE. SCRIBED STILL HAS ENOUGH POSITIVES TO JUSTIFY ITS MONTHLY FEES. THE SERVICE I LIKE THE BEST IS THE ENDLESS AMOUNT OF DOCUMENTS/COMPANY HANDOUTS OR POLICIES, AND FORMS THAT ARE ACCESSIBLE AND INCLUDED WITH YOUR MONTHLY FEES. THE FACT YOU CAN FIND A FORM, DOCUMENT, COMPANY HANDBOOK OR HANDOUT ON ALMOST EVERY SUBJECT JUSTIFIES THE MONTHLY COST TO ME. THE TREE BOOK RENTALS AND ONE AUDIOBOOK IS JUST AN ADDED BONUS AND COMPLIMENTS THE OTHER SERVICES I USE WHERE I ACTUALLY OWN THE BOOKS AND FILES I CHOOSE EVERY MONTH. ILL BE A LIFETIME MONTHLY SUBSCRIBER TO SCRIBED BECAUSE I CAN HONESTLY SAY IT PROVIDES THINGS THAT OUR ALSO NEEDED THAT THE OTHER SERVICES DONT. GUESS KINDLE AND AUDIBLE HAVE PROS AND CONS, JUST LIKE SCRIBED BUT ALL THREE SERVICES ARE HONESTLY EQUALLY NEEDED IN MY EYES
App Interface is Fine - Content Not So Much 2/5
I'm pretty disappointed with this app overall. I did the 1 month free subscription and have felt a bit hoodwinked. Several times I have found a book I want to read only to find out after selecting it that it isn't in English, nor is there one available in English. I am grateful for the free trial as it provides me the opportunity to delete the app and cancel my subscription before being charged.
Lots of Selection 5/5
So far I love this app. Mostly for its technical content. Can't wait to try the audio books and ebooks!
Great technical reference resource at a reasonable price. 5/5
Glad to have purchased this app. It's paid for itself again and again.
Love it for Audiobooks. 5/5
This is a great alternative to the other audiobook companies.
Scribd, great app! 5/5
I really like this app, plan to keep it around for a long time.
